Thanksgiving and Beyond

What our holidays have to do with Holy Days


Keri Wyatt Kent is onto something. She writes in an article on our sister website that there is a wonderful connection between our holidays—Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and so on—and the Holy Days we read about in Scripture. Each of them is a time to remember, celebrate, and gather together before God. Gratitude and celebration are especially important in our walk. It is through them that joy can spring forth and give us strength to walk through the difficult days of life. Additionally, Keri shares how we are called to be grateful even when things are tough, just as the pilgrims were.

Take a moment to read through Keri's insights, reminders, and even an idea about outreach in "Happy Holy Days."

Thanks for the reminder that we need to be gracious even when times are tough. The trials and tribulations are what keep us close to God.
